These Pets And Their Humans Understand That #LoveIsLove

Posted by Stacey Venzel

When it comes to lessons on love, there's no better teacher than pets.

Who says a dog and rabbit can't be friends? Who says a cat can't have two moms? Who says a goat can't be man's best friend?

Pets and their humans love each other however they darn well please. We've collected a snippet of some love from around the world to show you just how much affection is out there, no matter the color of your skin (or fur or scales or feathers), and no matter if you're a boy or girl.

Instead of perusing celebrity and stock photos, we wanted to show real pets and real people showing real love. We asked; you answered. The response was inspiring!

Pets choose love every day. Animals might be LGBTQ and so might their owners. They might be of different abilities or ethnicities or even species, but at the end of the day, they prove that #LoveWins.

Do you know somebody who could use a little TLC? Share the love.
